-7, when president obama got elected last year. and they were there. last night, when terry mcauliffe won the governorship. if you get presidential election type turnout in virginia, from here on out in all of their elections, republicans will never win again in that state. look specifically at the african-american turnout. when the republicans won that governorship back in 2009, the black turnout was 16%. when president obama was on the ballot last year, black turnout turned up to 20% of the electorate. last night again, black turnout was 20% of the electorate. african-american voters in virginia turned out. even though it was not a presidential year. even though it was an off-off year. and if african-american voters can turn out like that again in every election in virginia, that is a nightmare for the republican party. so yeah, ken cuccinelli lost, and the republicans lost the governorship. both of those are history-defying, bad news, bad bench marks for the republican party. and who turned out, looks bad for virginia republicans not just for last night's race but for every race go

polls give obama higher approval numbers, still the lowest he had sense he became president. asked who they want to have more influence over if country, obama or republicans in congress, the answer was pretty much a wash. the holidays fast approaching, the end of 2013, beyond that, it raises the question of what will the parties be rung on in the 20 froen mid-terms. can they say? our job approval numbers are down, the american people are unhappy with us. pleads vote for us anyway. you are more unhappy with those guys. it seemed to work for democrats weeks ago when voters more than they embraced democrat harry mcauliffe. now republicans are convinced they have a winning negative message of their own thanks to the obama care rollout headaches. i guess i'll throw this open to the panel. if we had this discussion three weeks ago i would have been talking about the virginia governor's race a couple weeks ago, the fallout from the shutdown and the debt ceiling brinksmanship. they would have said, well, i haven't seen a republican brand this poisonous since impeachment in 1988. the intafs non
